The other wine to be made by the Domaine back in 2014 even before it was inaugurated. A blend of  60% Syrah, 30% Grenache & 10% Carignan with a stainless steel fermentation & 100% of the blend aged in oak barrels for 12 months before bottling. Deep and intense dark color, lots of black fruit aromas, with smoke and toasted nuances. Fresh on the palate with more spice & red fruits with fine tannins and a robust structure. Ideal marriage with red meats such as spicy lamb dishes of lamb & duck.


The Southern Rhône Valley is a renowned wine region located in the southeastern part of France. It is one of the most important wine-producing areas in the country and is famous for its diverse range of high-quality wines. The region stretches along the course of the Rhône River, covering several departments in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes regions.

AOP Luberon is a wine appellation located in the southeastern region of France, specifically in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. The area encompasses a picturesque landscape characterized by rolling hills, olive groves, and vineyards. The appellation is named after the Luberon mountain range, which serves as a backdrop to the vineyards.

The climate in Luberon is Mediterranean, characterized by hot, dry summers and mild winters, which is conducive to grape cultivation. The terroir, which includes limestone and clay soils, also contributes to the distinctive character of the wines produced here.

Climate & Terroir

The region experiences a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. The proximity to the Mont Ventoux and the Mistral wind influence the local climate, helping to cool down the vineyards during the warm growing season and promote a healthy environment for the grapevines.

The AOP Ventoux vineyards benefit from diverse terroirs, with soils ranging from limestone, clay, and marl to stony terrains. The varying soil compositions, altitudes, and exposures contribute to the complexity of the wines produced in the region.

AOP Ventoux has gained recognition for producing quality wines, and it offers a more affordable alternative to some of the neighboring prestigious appellations in the Southern Rhône Valley. The wines of AOP Ventoux are known for their approachable nature, making them enjoyable both as everyday sippers and for special occasions.

Ideal drinking temperature 15°C.
